Review Summary

This run to Cabo with an overnight is a great itinerary. I love the fact that you get two days in Cabo. But this was overshadowed by the problems on the ship. The air conditioning on nearly every floor went out for two days during the peak humidity near Cabo. The food on the ship with the exception of the pizza and the burgers was very poor. Some of the staff are rude. And the drinks are overpriced.

We have sailed 15 times on different lines and Princess has the most ridiculous embarkation process. Even if you arrive to the port early you are herded like cattle into different groups and different waiting areas. Carnival has a much better process and they are part of the same company. So its hard to understand why they use this system.

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Of all the ships I have sailed on this one had the worst food by far. From the morning coffee which was sudsy to pastries that are tasteless and the dinner fare which was equivalent to a cheap drive thru.

Ship Tip

Stand in line for dinner at 5 pm. Do not wait until the doors open in the dining rooms at 5:30. The hostesses quickly lose control of the entire process and it becomes chaotic.

Once again Princess believes in herding people into different groups and making them sit around for hours and hours instead of just focusing on getting people off the ship. It was chaos.
